    Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is the best Star Wars game to release for mobile devices in recent memory.

    Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes is an entertaining way to play in the Star Wars universe that is well worth picking up.

    A simple RPG wrapped in a pretty complex free to play system, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is fun, but there's not that much to it.

    Galaxy of Heroes injects the Star Wars licence into a mobile blueprint, and the result is pretty bland.

    Another miss opportunity to bring a real masterpiece based on the George Lucas universe. The same flat and dull RPG adventure experience yet seen in many other games.

    Galaxy of Heroes is the demonstration that the Star Wars template is not enough to save an already criticized formula.

    I only want to help the UNDECIDED =DECIDE
    ----My review is 100% honest! .

    -I wrote a nasty review on the Ap store page and want to make amends now that it's two weeks later..
    ~~~THIS GAME DOESNT REQUIRE MONEY!!!
    -fact= I have yet to spend a single dollar. If you do spend money = you're ruining you're own fun!

    -the coins system,gems is same as all other games with 1 huge difference.
    -difference- is you pick from about 150 Star Wars legendary characters, and each one has 3-5 unique attacks or special moves etc..
    --the game is RPG as you're goal is to unlock & upgrade you're characters...
    --Thanks to The Manager of GameStop in Hamden,CT for telling me to play this game.(not the 1st time this dude has been helpful! TY GameStop Manager!

    --you can buy packs with character shards in them or earn them by doing 1-3 minute long TURN BASED battles..and you get REALLY GOOD REALLY FAST....

    --the main screens layout has all the game modes you click on to enter that arena area/style..and each one has its own style..like the light side or dark side means you can only use YOURE Good guys, vice versa if you enter dark side..there's the PVP arena which isn't really you vs a LIVE person but you play against they're team with the AI controlling it(L A M E!!!) that's the biggest comp,ain't besides the Free to Play scam tactics...

    --I've been playing for two weeks and I'm addicted...but I'm sooo proud of myself for not spending real money. I've been tempted several times..I even have $15 on my iTunes at all times...but I stand by the fact that if I pay for the stuff I want= it ruins the fun of earning it or getting a jump for joy surprise lottery type win...

    -my only super unlock so far has Been Ashoka , GREEDO, and A lame Ewok Hero Teebo.
    -Teebo and Ashoka are lame,,but GREEDO is AMAZING and always in my lineup...

    --BOTTOM LINE- the game is amazing and this developer is special guys..imagine if they weren't owned by the evil empire EA...imagine instead of Free to Play= we payed $20 to play forever and the scam of temptation to spend real money is removed..wow! ThisngMe would be the best tablet game ever.. But it's not and EA does own this developer...so sad. But that's our creepy world of scam...

    --also, The most powerful legendary characters I'm patiently grinding for are
    In order
    -PALPATINE!
    -That Blue Twilek Jedi Knight from the prequels(she's owns me everytime)
    -Qui Gonn **** he is a bad2the bone tank!!

    --surprisingly missing are
    -JANGO FETT
    --WEDGE
    -BOSK(Trandoshian lizard faced bounty hunter/Wookie killer from Empire strikesBack.
    -freaking YODA (what the heck guys?? He must be future doc or something.

    ----Dissapointing character heroes in game are
    -Obi Wan Kenobi- it's old man on tatooine so he's lame and weak. BAH!
    -Anakins- (not Vader) this is episode 3 Anakin and he's mediocre. Shame on u guys!!!
    -Lando! Cmon now, Lando is everyone's favorite and he is awful..
    --Leia and Luke(ESP Leia) she is just weak. This is the daughter of Vader!!!
    --Han is Missing. He's a enemy,but only playable as storm trooper armor Han Solo..????
    -Mace Windu even all Jacked up is only average at best and I skip him everytime I see him...

    --Morgan Freeman shoulda been Mace, this way the character is force strong wizard type,,not a Jedi thug..
    --Leo Decaprio or anyone who could act shoulda been Anakin..
    -And ANYBODY shoulda been PADME.. Natalie was awful, it wasn't all Hayden..atrocious smile!!

    Great game. Turn-based strategy with fun adventures, events, and online play.

    The only issue is the premium content -expensive. They should really lower the paywall for rewarding non-F2P players. it feels like im gettin my head smashed in with a sledgehammer when I open my wallet. Having my fingers surgically removed without painkillers would probably be just as fun as opening pretty much anything you can buy -whether its a "sale", or just a simple "once-over".

    Lacks content, beat half the game in 5 days. Only spent $3.

The game is incomplete with very little instruction and entire game sections that are nonsensical compared to the characters (ships). The gameplay is horrendously repetitive, so much so that they build in a mechanism to bypass it. Seriously, there's a button so you don't have to endure the GAMEPLAY of the game. And it is TERRIBLY buggy. I often play against lower-ranked opponents and they move upwards of 3 times before my characters move at all.

    If not for its attachment to Star Wars, this game would have died a long time ago.

    If you're not willing to spend an incredible amount of money and time on this game, please don't irritate yourself with this app.
    I've been playing since December 3, so I speak from experience. I kept telling myself that they will work out the issues, but that has not been the case, and unfortunately, the attitude of E.A. seems to be to make things worse.
    That being said, an incredible amount of obvious cash-grabs, time-sink and crashes/bugs all over the place. They recently (July 6) rolled out an untested update that crashed the game and set many players back a day of game-play. Their solution was to offer a few crystal which are worth $2. Buying that lost time in the game would have been $20.
    Also, they intentionally make things more difficult without offering better rewards because it helps their "time spent" numbers. After months of complaining about a daily task taking about an hour to complete, they promised to fix it (which to be fir happened for about two weeks), then the immediately "stealth" changed it back and now it takes about 1 1/2 hours to complete. After an uproar and a week of silence, they released a statement basically saying that's exactly what they intended to do (accept a small error for a few high-level players which they are fixing IMMEDIATELY and making that mode take even longer for them as well).
    Bottom line - save yourself the aggravation and stay away from this game!!

There's so many walls that force you to either invest a ridiculous amount of time or money to get any enjoyment out of it that its not worth it. Plus the game is encouraging you to spend time on it all throughout the day and using underhanded methods to get you to spend money on it. They are definitely trying to scam weak-minded people out of their money, such as myself, sadly. Everything is overpriced. I made this account just so i could warn other people away from this awful game. Expand

    If you are not prepared to throw lots of money (and time) at the game don't bother.

    This is an amusing diversion hampered by mechanics
    If you are not prepared to throw lots of money (and time) at the game don't bother.

    This is an amusing diversion hampered by mechanics designed to appeal to addictive personalities.

    The practices of EA are deceitful at best.

    If you have problems with impulse control stay away.
